Fong Bin Hospital 1872
Graphite - 10” x 14”
An abandoned hospital, once a shelter for the sick and homeless, now lies in ruin, its decrepit structure a home to the ghosts who roam this area of Cheung Chau.
However, they are not the only guests whom have settled in since the boats sailed out a hundred years ago.
The spirit tree hosts a parasite, gradually growing bigger, wrapping itself around its branches and trunk, growing until it is strangled to death.
On and on the cycle goes, the guest becomes the host, the host becomes the ghost, the ghost becomes the guest…
